I am exhausted.  We are trying to paint every room in our new house and the baby's been sick, so this week has been a big struggle.  We move all the furniture on Saturday.  My new house resolution is to be super organized and totally clean and awesome.  We'll see how long that lasts.  My eBay room is looking good though.  It's a nice gray color and Tyler's going to put up lots of shelving for me.  I'm also going to break down and order some mannequins.  I am totally loathe to pay $18.00 in shipping for plastic torsos, but with the amounts of dresses and things I've been buying, it would be stupid not to.

Speaking of dresses, I finally got rid of a gorgeous Ann Taylor dress on Monday, only to have the buyer tell me "it's lovely, but doesn't work" for her.  She's sending it back, so that's $40.00 I get to refund.  Hooray.  If it weren't a size 4, I would just keep it.

I've had no chance to thrift or list this week and my store is the emptiest it's been in a long time (145 items). 

One exciting thing this week (you know, other than closing on our first house), is that I paid the first half of our vacation rental for Tybee!  I am really hoping I can pull this out! 


  1. ugggh I hate returns. I hope you charge a restocking fee. That may cut down on the buyer's remorse returns

  2. I swear my sales have increased since I got my mannequin. I take my pictures outside against the side of the house and the natural light really makes a difference

  3. I need to get a mannequin too. Ive been putting it off because I don't know what size to get. I have such a HUGE variety of sizes. Congrats on the new home.
